Western Hills Garden
Volunteer News

The volunteer effort saved the garden during foreclosure and helped with clearing paths and weeds during the initial change in ownership in 2010–2011. Since then, the installation of an automatic irrigation system and consistent effort by a paid gardening staff have brought the garden back to life without a lot of volunteer help. What the garden needs now are skilled volunteers to help us make the next move to restore the garden as a horticultural destination. This means helping to identify plants, pruning the rarer plants, propagation, bringing in new cultivars, and advancing the educational goals of the garden by making it more accessible to the public. We are especially looking for “docent” volunteers who can spend time with visitors. Please identify yourself to Chris (Chris@WesternHillsGarden.com) if you would like to assist in this phase.

Thank you, Volunteers!
